Shipping & Returns

Shipping Calculator- Please do not be alramed by your initial shipping charge. Our shipping calculator is based off the dollar value in your cart. Know that our shipping calculator is a work in progress! Our actual shipping rates are based off miles*, weight, & size of box. We do not know our true cost of shipping until we've entered those values into our shipping system. Once we know the true shipping cost, we simply remove the excess shipping charge from your pending credit card transaction. We give a shipping refund 85% of the time, and many refunds are below our $10 minimum shipping charge**! The shipping rate chart will show how your initial rate is calculated within our website. 

*Please note that we ship all products out of Minnesota. Generally, the following areas have a slightly higher shipping charge for any package above 1 pound due to the large miles the package travels; Any state in the Pacific time zone, Mountian time zone, Easten time zone (minus MI & IN), and select areas in TX, LA, MS, AL, TN, & KY.*

**Generally speaking if the weight of the box, products, & packing material is below 1 pound this results in lower shipping charges**

How Long Will My Package Take to Get to Me?- We know nothing is worse then ordering the perfect product online and then having to wait 8 business days to get it. As a business, we want you to receive your order fast! That is why we use the fastest standard shipping services possible! We utilize USPS Priority Mail (1-3 business days), USPS First Class Mail (1-5 Business days), and UPS Ground (1-5 business days)*. Calculated into your shipping charge is the speedy shipping service that we use!

*Lynn's Cake and Candy is NOT liable for packages arriving later than times specified times or any other faults made by shipping carriers.*

Depending on the size of box required to ship your order, we reserve the right to ship First Class, Priority, or UPS ground, regardless of listed shipping method.  

We make every attempt to keep enough inventory on hand to complete your order or we remove it from our store.  We will call/email you for further instructions if we're out of something.  If the item is not expected to be in stock soon or we don't hear back from you within 1 day, we will remove it from your order and ship the rest.  NO PARTIAL SHIPMENTS OR BACKORDERS

PLEASE use common sense when ordering chocolate in warm months or shipping to warm climates. It will probably melt. We do not ship with ice packs.  If your chocolate arrives melted, it can be remelted to make your chocolate goodies. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR MELTED CHOCOLATE.

Please plan on busy times of the year (Christmas season) resulting in potentially very long shipment times. We do our part and typically ship out your package within 1 day of receiving your order. We are not responsible for a lengthy delivery time due to failure by the USPS or UPS. We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages.  We strongly recommend customers pay for a "signature required" service if you're concerned about porch pirates. Inform us of your desire to purchase the service in the "how you heard about us" section.
